Hadil Karawani examines crosslinguistic patterns of the expression of counterfactuality as manifested in counterfactual conditionals. The focus of attention of her study is divided between a morpho-syntactic / semantic inquiry concentrating on the interaction between tense, aspect, mood and modality on the one hand, and a semantic / pragmatic inquiry focusing on the presuppositions and implicatures of counterfactual conditionals in a dynamic framework on the other.
